During this NBA season, there has been a narrative that a rift between the players and the referees exists and is widening. Both sides even held a meeting during All-Star weekend to address the issues. Tensions between referees and players have existed in some way for as long as anyone can remember. But there are numbers this season that back it up. According to the NBA’s Last Two Minute reports, there have been a number of blown calls in a lot of tight games. It’s happened most often to the Brooklyn Nets — 28 times, fact. That’s the most in the NBA. Earlier in the season, Nets player Spencer Dinwiddie complained about his team specifically not being officiated the right way. It seems like he has a point, per Chris Herring of FiveThirtyEight.
